Spanglish is a friendly, casual and relaxed restaurant where delectable Spanish foods and the English-speaking Caribbean mesh with each other to provide unique yet delicious cuisine. (Spanish+English=Spanglish).
Nestled into The Strand, the restaurant offers a cozy feel featuring modern lounge decor with a hint of urban jungle.
Spanglish prides itself on what owner Roger Alex Espinal describes as its Latin and Mexican cuisine, which he’s quick to point out are similar but also distinctly different.
“Mexican is more like nachos, more corn tortillas, more shredded beef with some cilantro, Pico de Gallo… a lot of jalapenos,” he said. “When you say Latin, we do have more flour tortillas, like baleadas, for example. You are not going to find a baleada in Mexico.”
Spanglish offers a wide variety of fresh fish and seafood options as well as steaks, tacos and specialties from Mexico, Colombia and Espinal’s native Honduras.
They also have a bar where customers can sip on a variety of beverages like the Tamarind, Mango and original margaritas while chatting with friends or watching Champions League football on TV. What better time to try them out than between 4-7 p.m. for Spanglish’s daily happy hour? And if it happens to be Tuesday, make sure to check out their Taco Tuesday specials.
